Variations in Quality Indicators Across Ontario Physician Networks


This chartbook reports performance levels for a set of quality indicators that reflect healthcare delivery across settings of primary and specialty care, acute hospital care and long-term care, as well as shared care and transitions from one setting to another. The quality indicators include screening and prevention, evidence-based medications, drug safety, hospital to community transitions, adverse outcomes, imaging and cancer end-of-life care. Costs for publicly insured healthcare services are also examined. These measures, assessed at the level of physician networks, provide essential information needed to guide health system transformation and foster communication around shared patients.
